Has anyone toured Israel using Noah Tours and if so, would you recommend them
first of all I am from Italy ( sorry for my english) .
Yes I know them , they expose every year in international fairs of tourism like BIT in Milan with the israeli ministery of tourism , this I found in the internet. this is one of the reason that conviced me to choose Noah Tours. Than ... my experience with them was wery good thay organized for me 9 days 8 nights private tours. I also post something here in trip advisor about this tour. tripadvisor.it/ShowUserReviews-g293977-r9972…
I can suggest you , like i did , to ask them emails of their customers. They will give you and you can ask them more reviews.
I think you can go here http://noahtours.com there is " client reviews" there are all the names and contacts of clients...
We just returned from a 17 day tour of Israel, Petra and Egypt provided by Noah Tours.The trip was excellent and ran with virtually no complications despite the fact that tours of Petra (Jordan) and Egypt were cross-border and were handled by different tour companies although arranged by Noah Tours. The trip included 5 days on a Nile cruise between Luxor and Aswan, 1 day in Petra, 2-3 days in Cairo and 1 week in Israel.
The trip also included one flight within Israel and two flights within Egypt, all arranged by Noah tours.
The border crossings usually involved the tour company taking us to the border. We crossed the border on our own. Another tour company met us on the other side. All transfers with the exception of Eilat, airport to hotel, were covered by Noah Tours.
The sites we visited were exceptional and all the guides were very knowledgeable and were instrumental in making the history come alive. But what really made a tour of this complexity so enjoyable was the seemless, behind the scenes service provided by Noah Tours. They were outstanding. Special thanks to Avi, our guide in Israel for his knowledge and sense of humour and to Guy at Noah Tours who was always there when we needed help or had questions.
Finally, I would suggest that the trip from Taba to Cairo should be done by air rather than by van in the future.
We traveled 2 times with Noah Tours in Istrael and we were always satisfied. Excellent organization and great guide. The first time we did a tour classic but the second time we wanted to do a more detailed tour visiting some places also different from the main touristic attractions.Noah tour offered us an excellent program with a an archaeologist and organized everything very well.
We will come back again with them.
I'm in Israel right now, and I've just finished 4 half-day tours provided by Noah Tours. They picked us up at the hotel (me and my family) and then we started our journeys. They are very professional, especially one of our guides was very clever and well-prepared on almost everything, but also kind and friendly. There is obviously the commercial part, because you go having lunch in the restaurant where the guide is well-known (they say is for security and health) and they always stop the tour at some contract souvenir shop; but, as far as I know, those situation are normal in guided tours, and I have definitively appreciated them more than a lot of other guides in the world.
Can somebody tell me what Hotels do NOah offers as 4 stars hotels.???
We have been on an Israel/Jordan/Egypt tour with Noah Tours, and I would definitively recommend them: all the organization has been excellent, the amount of stuff we managed to see and visit in 10days was astonishing.
Noah organized all transfers and pick-ups, and they also booked on our behalf an hotel in Taba, for the last 3days of the tour...all went smoothly, and I would definitively recommend them to anyone looking for a tour in Israel/Jordan....you won't get disappointed!
Hello! Greetings from Cairo!
im on tour since sep 28th to visit israel, jordan and egypt and currently in egypt until Friday 19th Oct. 2012.
It's been fantastic and so grateful for Noah Tours for all the arrangements.
I am a solo female traveler and my experience overall has been wonderful!
I am quite amazed at how well-coordinated they are with all the transfers from one place to another given that my itinerary is so full.
They've been so patient with me and responsive in answering my queries even before i booked w/ them.
just ask for Guy Timberg, he's absolutely the man ! :) another person i met in their office is Nili. So there you now have 2 contacts from the agency.
Have a safe and fun trip! :)Edited: 12:12 pm, October 14, 2012
